Will have to check out 11/20 as a number of folks have mentioned this as an oversight...must admit i'm not real familiar w/that show...will listen again to 12/28 also.

I didn't include 12/16 mostly b/c i'm a SBD snob...but I should judge the show on its merits...

12/16/78 is a pretty fantastic AUD, by the way. Make sure you listen past the first ten seconds or so. The quality improves big time. It's really kind of hard to believe that this is an AUD. This also features one of the best Scarlet> Fires that I know and some of the most tasteful slide work I've ever heard from Weir.

Take it from this reviewer:

Another example of how an AUD can convert even the most ardent of SBD snobs (myself included!) - this is easily of the best recordings of '78.

Funny, I just listened to 11/20 for the first time yesterday.
The second set really is greater than the sum of its parts.
